Active arc fault protection with DEHNshort
These are the most common reasons for an arc fault:
- Human error when working on the assembly
- Contaminants in the assembly
- Foreign objects, e.g., forgotten tools
- Animals in the assembly
There is always a risk, even in the most modern assemblies. And there is a lot at stake because arc faults present mortal danger. From an economic point of view, arc faults can entail immense costs, e.g., due to production downtime and extensive repairs.
Quenching arc faults as soon as they arise
DEHNshort, the modular arc fault protection system detects arc faults with the aid of current and light sensors. The reaction time of just a few milliseconds limits the incident energy to a minimum. DEHNshort protects human life and equipment to a much higher degree than required by the currently valid standard IEC TR 61641.
